Rubashkin Appeal To Be Heard Wednesday

rubashkinAt 1:30 p.m. this Wednesday, June 15th, in the Thomas Eagleton Federal Courthouse in St. Louis, Missouri, an appeal will be argued before three judges on the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals in one of the most bitterly contested and controversial criminal trials in many years. The central claim on Rubashkin’s appeal is that the federal judge who presided at Rubashkin’s trial and sentence, and who imposed a prison sentence greater than even the prosecutors asked for, and that six former United States Attorneys General — Nicholas Katzenbach, Ramsey Clark, Edwin Meese, Richard Thornburgh, William Barr, and Janet Reno — and seventeen former federal prosecutors and high-ranking Justice Department officials have decried as an unbelievably harsh punishment for a first-time, non-violent offender, “appeared” to be heavily involved with the government prosecutors and federal agents in planning and carrying out the unprecedented raid.

  1. We have to daven and daven and daven….
    Klal Yisroel should unite in tefilla so sholom mordechai should have the yeshua he so deperately needs.

  2. SOME OF THE REASONS the rubashkin case/story is happening in the first place is

    1)because THE ONLY WAY FOR MASHIACH TO COME is if ALL of klal yisroel comes together as one-no matter which group from frum to chasidish to conservative…- for without achdus a person has nothing (without shalom & achdus in a persons home, he has no home)

    2)About 18 months after Rubashkin was arrested a yid came to visit him. Rubaskin then told him, maybe this is why i am here (in prison R”L) klal yisroel has not gotten together as one nation & in order for mashiach to come we all need to be one (no matter what level of yiddishkeit each person is on) & if you know Rubashkin personally you can see why Hashem picked him to be the shliach for klal yisroel. he is a person of faith & trust in hashem. With boruch hashem his big family & many other big issues-besides the case he’s in now-he is a person on a very high level of bitachon & emunah in Hashem
